We truly enjoyed the Sami camp and reindeer sledding! It is true. We also didn’t get to see the lights. You have to get lucky. Because it would start to snow in the afternoon and evening, the clouds would obscure the lights. Time of night important. It seemed the folks who saw the lights went between 11 pm and 3 am. You have to be VERY patient (and) lucky. Another option is set up an excursion with a private tour group. The people who did that had greater success with seeing the lights. Hope this helps!
In the morning we took a private tour to visit the Sami and the reindeer. Very enjoyable. At night we took a private excursion to see the Northern Lights. We were extraordinarily lucky that night and were thrilled by what we saw.

Visited Northern Lights Observatory saw a film, very informative. Arctic Cathedral a fine example of modern architecture, crossed the Tromso bridge very good views of the city.
Lovely stop. Taxi rides to cable cart approx 300nok one way. Amazing views and mountain climbs once at the top. It’s an amazing place to visit and lots to do.
Another day didn’t really have much planned but then had the best fun packed day! Went to the cable car up the mountain amazing view of the island and great trek up the hill felt like we were in the clouds. Then walked to the cathedral which is unique and then over the bridge which was Amazing into the city. The gardens were lush.. and the sun shone all day... perfect
We did not partake of a short excursion, but went to the stunningly beautiful Alpine Botanical Garden and several museums. There's no reason to waste time or money on a shore excursion in Tromso.

I i took an nature excursion to a nearby Island (Whale Island). The weather was poor, but the excursion that took us by the location of the bombing of the Tirpitz, walking on tundra, picking blueberries and cloud berries was fun. Scenery would have been great in better weather.
